Spring Spin

– a cool hundred mikes around Lake County with a brief sojourn into Wisconsin. I gotta say it but the bike is just a pleasure to ride.

Coming out of winter

Out & About

– Lake Bluff was the nearby destination with grey skies overhead. Project site visit to inspect trees that are going to be transplanted. Good to be on the bike in spring. New sheepskin saddle cover is plush and make you want to ride off into the west.

Sturmey Archer 3-Speed?

– Made in Nottingham these were on every boys list in the Seventies. They were ridden as if they had an engine like this smart example.

Tiger in the Dust

There are a few glowing articles out there about the new Triumph Tiger 1200. Redesigned from the ground up. The various models give blistering attitude for the asphalt roadways and the crude off-road trails. Press release was carried out in Portugal.
